Soon after Kyle Frost was walking, he knew what his life's passion was - aviation. On Saturday, Aug. 13, Frost took a major step toward turning that passion into a career by earning his private pilot's license at age 17.
"I've known I've wanted to fly since before I was four years old," said the Eagle River High junior. "Now that I'm old enough to do it, I just went out and did it."
Few people Frost's age get their pilot's license, said Patrick O'Hare, who's been an instructor since 1975.
"He should be proud of what he accomplished," O'Hare said.
